For my mother, recovered from hospital yet confused and afraid as Alzheimer’s steals her memory.
For my partner, since she is his mother, too.
For my brother and sister and their families.
For my father, whose last, eldest sibling has died.
For my friend whose mother has just died.
For my friend whose father is failing.
For my friend whose husband has a recurrence of cancer.
For my friend and her husband, both wrestling with chronic health issues.
For so many others.
I have no words.
